Monster Hunter Rise, the sixth mainline entry in Capcom's creature-slaying action RPG, is now broken on Steam Deck. It seems that, right after the company replaced its old digital rights management (DRM) software with a new one, the game just wouldn't boot up anymore. That sucks, but Capcom is investigating the issue.

Yuffie Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Screenshots Highlights Her Doppelganger Attack EN 

Square Enix released a few Final Fantasy VII Rebirth screenshots on social media highlighting Yuffie and her abilities. In particular, it shows a quick glimpse of the ninja's new doppelganger attack.

It seems the latest batch of images highlight three different types of attack from Yuffie. In one, she's performing a standard attack with her four-point shuriken. In the other, it seems that she is performing her Elemental Ninjutsu ability. This appeared in the Episode INTERmission DLC in Final Fantasy VII Remake and allowed her to change the element tied to her attacks. It's the third screenshot that shows the doppelganger move. When performed, a duplicate of her shows up to also attack whichever enemy is also on the field in front of her.

Here's a closer look at all three of the Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Yuffie battle screenshots.

Now that the game's release is drawing near, Square Enix has shared more looks at what to expect. For example, there was a "Destined for Rebirth" trailer. The company also showed off this version of Dyne and what a date with Barret at the Gold Saucer will look like.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will come to the PS5 on February 29, 2024, with the exclusivity arrangement ending on May 29, 2024. FFVII Remake is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC, and FFVII Ever Crisis is available on the PC and mobile devices.

     One of the greatest FPS games in PC history is basically $1

From the '90s boomer shooter heyday to around the mid '00s, FPS games on the PC were unstoppable. Inside 15 years you have Wolfenstein, Doom, Quake, Half-Life, Unreal, No One Lives Forever, Counter-Strike 1.6, and Half-Life 2. It's a golden era. Maybe I'm nostalgic and getting a little old, but if you want superb, single-player shooters, that roughly decade and a half between id Software's first opus and Valve's groundbreaking sequel is where you need to look. There's one FPS, however, that compared to some of its contemporaries has perhaps been a little forgotten. With incredible bullet time effects, spectacular body physics, and the best shotgun in the business (barring perhaps Doom 2's double-barreled icon), this superb slice of FPS history is now yours for just over $1.

Who is the Palworld Black Marketeer? While it isn't a fully-formed system just yet, there will eventually be a system of contraband in Palworld, and even the ability to steal pals from other players. Getting rid of your illegal goods, though, that's the tricky part, and exactly where the Black Marketeers come in.

Life in Palworld is certainly an interesting affair - our very own Nat's Palworld early access review explains this perfectly. You can live peacefully, if that's your thing, or you can stray to the dark side of pals, dipping a toe into the illegal. For those two who do stray to the wrong side of the tracks, the Black Marketeer is an NPC that will come in very handy, especially if you're trying to smuggle the rarest of the Palworld Pals in the early access version of the game.

     How to move your Palworld base

How do you move your base in Palworld? Building up a base with new structures, populating it with workaholic little friends, and defending it from attacks is perhaps the most involved aspect of this gun-toting creature collector. Only your imagination (and how far along you are on the technology tree) limits how grand of a base you can build – but as you explore the creature infested islands, you'll likely want to move your base to a new, better location, especially as it also serves as a fast travel point.

Interested in more about Palworld? We have a comprehensive list of all the adorable and ferocious Palworld Pals you can tame (or shoot, alarmingly enough) throughout your base-building adventure. And while not a graphically intensive game, you'll want to double check that your system can run it with our overview of the minimum and recommended Palworld system requirements. With that out of the way, read on to see how to move a Palworld base – and how to unlock more than one.

     How to heal Pal injuries in Palworld

How do you heal and revive Palworld Pals? Palworld might be the dark game in which you can kill, eat, and enslave your Pals, but that doesn't mean there aren't going to be some Pals you want to take greater care of, and might need to heal if they're injured or knocked out in battle or work.

There are different types of maladies that can affect your Palworld Pals, from a simple cold, all the way to the grave. Different injuries require different types of medicine, which can be bought, dropped by other Pals, or crafted from various Palworld items. So, if you've got a poorly Pal in need of medical supplies, here's each injury type in Palworld, what you need to heal it, and how to craft certain medicines.

     How to upgrade Palworld base level

How do you upgrade the Palworld base level? One of the first things you need to do when starting a new campaign is set up your operations base. However, you soon get an objective to upgrade your base level, allowing you to eventually make new bases elsewhere and put additional Pals to work.

So, if you want a near-endless supply of wood, stone, and all other materials in Palworld, you must meet the level requirement to bring in new Palworld Pals. Unfortunately, the list is only found in one place in the open-world game: the Palbox you build at the base. Not only do we tell you how to upgrade your base level, but we also have a list of each of the required items needed per rank.

     Where to get Palworld coal

Where do you get Palworld coal? Getting some of the more effective weapons and gear to fight against tougher enemies requires some hard-to-find resources, and some of the rarest of these include sulfur, iron, and coal. While they're far more common in the later areas of the game, there are ways to grab these resources early on.

Of course, finding these Palworld resources is not the only hurdle you need to overcome in this survival game. After all, Palworld doesn't do the best job of telling you how to do everything, or even which of the Palworld element types is effective against which. If you want to upgrade your Palworld base level, you're going to need to know where to find Palworld coal and other rarer minerals.

     Palworld cooking explained

How does Palworld cooking work? In any game with a hunger meter in the user interface, there's always a big question about where that food comes from. In Palworld, you can capture or kill Pals for food. Sometimes, they drop meat, which you can cook, but other times, you may need to get a bit more creative. Then, there's the other principal question: do I have to eat my Pals?

Of course, if you put your mind to it, you can eat anything once, but Palworld has some creatures that we've already seen as edible out of the 100 Palworld Pals in the early access build. Since this is an open-world game where gadgets are vital to your progress, there are ways to make food and prepare it for consumption. So before the Palworld release date drops, here's everything we know about Palworld cooking.

     New 9/10 horror game is being slept on by everybody

Have you ever found something weird in your house? Perhaps you go down to the basement and find a growing, festering mold in a damp corner. Maybe you don't recognize that antique mirror sitting in your attic, or you're sitting on your couch, looking around the room, and somehow everything just feels incorrect. Recently launched on Steam and already boasting a big, 9/10, 'very positive' rating, a fantastic new horror game imagines a warped and surreal suburban America where demons, cryptids, and malevolent, sentient fungi are treated like everyday household problems. Push aside the high action of Resident Evil. Take a break from Dead by Daylight. The scariest thing in the world is operating a customer service helpline during the '90s. This is a game that deserves a lot more attention.

     Where to get Palworld pure quartz

Where do you find Palworld pure quartz? This material is needed for crafting circuits, which will in turn unlock electronic machines and increase your base's productivity as a whole. You'll need to know where to head to gather it first, though, so we've got you covered.

Take some Palworld Pals that know how to mine, as well as some Cattivas or other Pals that are known to increase your carrying capacity, as pure quartz isn't a light material at all. Once you've found the right spot on the Palworld map, you'll soon be able to find as much of the material as you need for your Palworld adventure.

     How to hatch Palworld eggs and breed Pals

How do you breed Pals and hatch eggs in Palworld? Palworld is a Pokemon-like game in which you catch and raise cute animals. It doesn't stop there, though, as Palworld also features weapons, dangerous bosses, exploration and survival, and even farming and automation - all including your Pals.

As with any creature collection game, though, one of the most crucial aspects is breeding. With an element of randomness, or RNG, to finding and catching your Palworld Pals, and their stats thereafter, breeding is a great method for creating a team of the strongest creatures in the adventure game. So, as you catch them all - and put them to work making guns in sweatshops - here's what you need to know about breeding in Palworld, and hatching Palworld eggs.

     Where to get Palworld milk

Where can you find Palworld milk? This ingredient is essential in the cooking of cakes, which are required in order to facilitate breeding in Palworld. You can unlock breeding at level 19, but you might not have found Palworld milk in the wild just yet. Don't worry - it's easier than you might think, and you don't even need a cow.

Of all the Palworld Pals in the game, relatively few will be able to help you obtain milk. Fear not though - there are other places in the Palpagos Islands that you can get this sought-after ingredient, and we'll direct you to the best parts of the Palworld map to find it. With that in mind, here's where you can find Palworld milk.

What are the Palworld map locations? Pocketpair's peculiar Poké-like takes place on Palpagos Island, a tropical paradise full of critters just waiting to be caught and put to work. If you're looking to survive the wilds, then you need a strong sense of direction – or a good map of all the locations and areas in the region. Thankfully, we can help you with the latter.

Pocketpair has confirmed the Palworld map size is approximately 16 square kilometers, and we may well see Palpagos Island expand further as more content is added to the open-world game. Our quest to catch all Palworld Pals is set to take us through active volcanoes, mystical ice caves, and expansive woodland areas.

Pocketpair's monster-collecting survival game Palworld has rekindled the eternal debate over what exactly constitutes a breach of copyright. While the game's mechanics are more reminiscent of Ark: Survival Evolved and other tree-punching, template-arranging wilderness sims, its monsters owe obvious debts to Nintendo and Game Freaks' Pokémon games.

The developers have something of a track record on this front, with their older early access release Craftopia freely stirring in nods to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. But what separates copyright infringement from a flagrant, but perfectly legal rip-off? Given that a lot of people are making the case for Palworld being copyright theft online, I thought it might be useful to seek insight from (ominous roll of thunder) an actual lawyer.

The next Cyberpunk game from CD Projekt - currently codenamed "Orion" - might have multiplayer in it, according to co-CEO Michal Nowakowski.

Watch those corners, samurai! Hey, you missed an ammo pack. SAMURAI ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME.

It'll be a while till we find out for sure: Orion is still in the conceptual phase, with CD Projekt expecting to have about 80 people working on it by the end of this year. The higher priority in 2024, it seems, is the next big steaming helping of The Witcher.

For a series that's defined by its trials and elaborate murder cases, the greatest crime in Ace Attorney history is arguably one we never get to see or take part in. Okay, maybe crime is too strong a word. Miscarriage of justice is perhaps more appropriate, and specifically that of Apollo Justice, the cover star of this latest trilogy in Capcom's beloved lawyer 'em up. Except poor old Apollo isn't really what holds this collection of Ace Attorneys 4, 5 and 6 together at all. Sure, he features in all of them, but at the end of the day, it's still the series' original bluffer supreme Phoenix Wright who heads up most of the casework here, relegating his new protegee back to bench-warming duties almost as soon as Apollo's debut game rolls its credits. What's more, he quickly has to share that space with Athena Cykes, another new hotshot lawyer that enters the firm in Dual Destinies and continues the scrappy defence trifecta in Spirit Of Justice.

The result is a set of games that feel considerably wobblier than Capcom's first and more robust Ace Attorney trilogy, and quite a bit more unfocused than the more recent Victorian-era spin-off, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. But despite a slightly unsure start, there are still plenty of career highs to be found here for Wright, Cykes and Justice, and Spirit Of Justice in particular remains one of the series' best entries to date. Those new to Ace Attorney should absolutely begin their journey elsewhere, but for series completionists, the Apollo Justice Trilogy is quite the welcome development.

2 More Games Join Crunchyroll Game Vault

Crunchyroll announced its Game Vault now includes two more games. Ponpu and Yuppie Psycho are now part of the collection on mobile devices for subscribers.

Ponpu first debuted back in 2020. It involves birds wielding bombs. While the focus is on multiplayer, as up to four people can take part in Coin Steal, Deathmatch, or the 2v2 Paint Battle, it also features a single-player campaign. 

Here's how that looks:


Yuppie Psycho first showed up in 2019. It's a horror adventure game involving a new employee at Sintracorp, which turns out to be a corporation with malicious and dangerous secrets. It's an entirely single-player experience.


Crunchyroll Game Vault opened back at the end of 2023 with five games in it. Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery, Captain Velvet: The Jump+ Dimensions, inBento, River City Girls, and Wolfstride are all already present on mobile devices. In the future, the company is also planning to open a Developer Portal so more developers can apply to have their games appear on the service.

Crunchyroll subscribers at the $9.99 per month Mega Fan or $14.99 per month Ultimate Fan tiers can access the games. They can then play said games on Android or Apple iOS devices.

Persona 3 Reload Developers Say the Idea of a Switch Version Exists

In a recent interview with Spanish-speaking gaming outlet Atomix, Persona 3 Reload Director Takuya Yamaguchi and Producer Ryota Niitsuma said that the idea for a Nintendo Switch version of the game exists. [Thanks, Atomix.vg!]

When asked about the possibility of a port of Persona 3 Reload reaching the hybrid platform, the developers said that "since starting to conceptualize [the remake], we decided that there would be no Nintendo Switch version." The developers admitted that the idea for a Switch version still exists. However, Yamaguchi and Niitsuma added that whether or not this version comes to happen is a matter of discussing it with the development team and see what they think about it.

A Nintendo Switch port of Persona 5 Royal released on October 21, 2022, followed by Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden ports appearing on January 19, 2023. The Switch versions of the games were initially announced back in June 2022 on a Nintendo Direct Mini. Meanwhile, Persona 3 Reload was announced on June 2023 during the 2023 Xbox Games Showcase. Atlus later confirmed it for all last gen and current platforms, with the exception of the Nintendo Switch.

Persona 3 Reload will appear for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam on February 2, 2024.

Sunbreak Steam Deck

Steam Deck owners wanting to play Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak on their machines are out of luck this week, as a recent update patch resulted in the game becoming unplayable on the platform. While Capcom has not confirmed it, many are blaming the introduction of the Enigma DRM system in the update.

Ver. went live on all platforms on January 22, 2024, and it mainly served to make certain promotional DLC unavailable to reinstall. However, since the update some users have found evidence of the digital rights management software Engima being integrated into the game. While Capcom did not confirm the addition as being the source of the problems, similar issues popped up when the software was added to other Capcom games like Resident Evil Revelations. The company has, however, promised a hotfix for Sunbreak on Steam Deck sometime "in the very near future".

You can read the full patch notes for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Ver. on the official site, and find Capcom's official response to Steam Deck issues below:


Earlier this month Takara Tomy announced 2 new Zoids model kits featuring designs based on Monster Hunter's Magnamalo and Rathalos. Capcom has also partnered with MSI Gaming to create several pieces of Monster Hunter-branded hardware and peripherals to celebrate the series' 20th anniversary.

Monster Hunter Rise and the Sunbreak expansion are readily available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch. A fix for issues involving Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak on the Steam Deck is coming soon.

Hololive Vtuber Houshou Marine Released Her Game Second World

Now that Hololive Vtuber Houshou Marine passed three million subscribers, she released the game The Second World that she worked on starting when she was in middle school. This was part of a promise she made to fans, as she said she'd do so if she hit that follower mark.

To get the game, people must get it from Dropbox. It is available as a zip file there, and you must use the password "marine" to get it and play it on PCs. It is an RPG Maker XV title, and she started working on it in 2007.

Here is the official stream when Marine announced she would release it and shared the download. It also features the direct link and password.


Ahead of its release, Marine also released a trailer for it. It featured voice actors like Marina Inoue (Alicia in Valkyria Chronicles, Armin in Attack on Titan) and Daisuke Kishio (Jeice in Dragon Ball, Cody in Street Fighter).


It is also possible to see Oozora Subaru playing the game The Second World alongside Houshou Marine.


The Houshou Marine original game The Second World is available for PCs now, and you can watch the Hololive Vtuber on YouTube.

Palworld Pokemon with Guns Rip-off

We're in that odd time of year when a number of big releases are upon us and games from other developers that might not normally get as much attention really shine. Palworld ended up becoming the latest "game of the moment," with many pointing to it as a Pokemon with guns rip-off. However, until you really look at Pals and Pokemon side-by-side, you might not see exactly how close these characters are to ones from Game Freak and The Pokemon Company, as well as Square Enix and Studio Ghibli.

Since Palworld launched, and even before, people have been referring to the character Lamball as being discount Wooloo, and it fits. There's definitely a strong resemblance to the Pokemon, with the Palworld character's main difference being the lack of fringe on the sides and it being bipedal.

With Cattiva, we're looking at a copy of the tricky fox Pokemon Zorua. The difference is one is entirely pink and walks around on its hind legs, and the other doesn't.

With Lucario, it's like Pocketpair liked the character so much that it decided to rip it off twice. The Anubis Pal looks like a yellow version of it, being a bipedal dog with similar markings and designs. However, the Rayhound also straight up takes the Lucario head, pops it on a Boltund body, and sticks a Raichu tail on it for good measure.

With the Jetragon, it's pretty weird. We're absolutely seeing shades of Latios and Latias, but also shades of the Paradox Pokemon Iron Moth. One could even argue there's some Salamence in there.

Now, I know people have been pointing to the Lifmunk looking like the Pokemon Leafeon, but I think we're looking at a Palworld rip-off of the Square Enix Final Fantasy summon Carbuncle.

To compare, here's the Final Fantasy Wiki's YouTube video of the summon. 


And here it is an official screenshot alongside Pokemon Unite.

This happens with the Palworld Pal Grizzbolt, though in this case I can't share the resemblance to the Studio Ghibli icon Totoro from My Neighbor Totoro

All Palworld Pals that look like Pokemon

Based on my going through the selection of revealed Pals so far, here's a list of the greatest resemblances to Pokemon I've seen in Palworld. Keep in mind this is based on my opinion and isn't complete, and in some situations I was willing to give Pocketpair the benefit of the doubt and figure they were going for a vaguelike animal-like, cute mascot.

  • Anubis: Lucario

Metal Gear Uniqlo UT t-shirts

Uniqlo has confirmed the release date for its re-releases of Metal Gear-themed T-shirts. It will start selling the Metal Gear UT Archive T-shirts on January 22, 2024.

A total of six T-shirt designs will be available in this collection. The lineup will include artworks of Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Solid Snake and Liquid Snake from Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and Raiden from Metal Gear Rising. As a side note, the Japanese text box on one of them translates to "This is an order!! Cut the power supply to the MSX!! ...Over"

The T-shirts will come with the same price tag of 1,500 yen in Japan. Each shirt will also be available in eight sizes from XS to 4XL. However, the XS, XXL, 3XL, and 4XL sizes will only be available to order via Uniqlo's web store. The physical outlets will only feature the S, M, L, and XL sizes.

Uniqlo had previously teased in October 2023 that it would re-release the Metal Gear series T-shirts in January 2024. It added that the T-shirts originally appeared in 2009 and 2012. That means twelve years will have passed for the branded T-shirts to go on sale once again.

These T-shirt re-releases also coincide with Konami's recent resurgence of interest in bringing the Metal Gear series back into the spotlight. The company recently released Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1, a compilation that includes the first three mainline Metal Gear Solid titles, for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC in October 2023.

The Metal Gear series UT Archive T-shirts will be available for sale at Uniqlo's web store and physical outlets on January 22, 2024.

There are seven prizes for the Ichiban Kuji lottery, which excludes the Double Chance and Last One prizes from previous Kingdom Hearts Ichiban Kuji. No retailers have been listed for this lottery, although previous ones ran in 7-Eleven and Ito-Yokado stores across Japan. The run period for this lottery has not yet been revealed.

  • D Prize: Glass Plate
  • E Prize: Towels
  • F Prize: Design Tumbler

Palworld Passes 5 Million Downloads, Hits Steam Concurrent Player Milestone

Pocketpair announced two new Palworld milestones, as it hit a new downloads hallmark and set a Steam concurrent player count record. The game now passed five million in sales, and it passed 1.5 million concurrent players.

With the Palworld five million downloads announcement, Pocketpair shared a new piece of art with insight. That plateau was within three days of the early access game's launch.


To offer more context, the game passed a million in sales after being available to purchase on Steam for eight hours.

As for the Palworld concurrent player announcement, Pocketpair offered a screenshot of SteamDB. It is now in third place for all-time peaks for concurrent players, just behind PUBG and Counter-Strike 2. While both of those are free, Palworld is a game people need to buy to play.  


It is now beating titles like Cyberpunk 2077, Elden Ring, and Baldur's Gate 3.

Since that last announcement, the number of concurrent players increased. The all-time peak in that screenshot was 1,501,100, and as of 9:30am ET it was at 1,582,482. Valve itself also noted it is the top selling game at the moment, beating Counter-Strike 2 and Baldur's Gate 3.

Palworld is available in early access on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.

apollo justice ace attorney trilogy review header

Seven years since the release of Spirit of Justice and sixteen since Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, we finally have a comprehensive compilation of the final three games in the Ace Attorney series. While the ports do justice to the original releases—even enhancing them—the fact that they easily allow you to play the games back to back highlights the existing issues with these games.

For reference, this review's score will focus on the experience of playing the games as ports. However, it is almost impossible to play it and not notice the dips in quality. I also had the brilliant idea of purchasing the original trilogy and The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles for the Switch, since they were on sale. Replaying a bit of those ones before continuing Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy was not fantastic. Like I said earlier, playing all of these games without years in between make it hard to ignore all the little issues that pile up.

Ace Attorney Apollo Justice review Dual Destinies opening
Screenshot by Siliconera

To start with, let's talk about how Capcom ported these games. Each individual game looks and feels really good! As we saw with Ghost Trick, Capcom has a stellar track record when it comes to porting games originally on the DS onto a single-screen device. If you didn't play these games when they were on the Nintendo DS or 3DS, it might be hard to believe that you originally had two screens to work with.

The sprites look really good with the exception of Dual Destinies; characters who were in the original 2D games appeared as 3D models for the first time and not everyone transitioned smoothly. Klavier, for example, lacks a lot of the charm from his 2D art. It wasn't so noticeable on the 3DS, but it's very obvious on the Switch. Trucy also looks weirder the more times I see her. She lacks the playful teenage girl vibe she had as a 2D sprites. Instead, she seems a lot older, which is at odds with her animations and dialogue. The sprites greatly improve in Spirit of Justice though, which is hardly a surprise. Capcom perfected the looks of 3D sprites in The Great Ace Attorney, which originally came out between Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice.

There are no issues at all in terms of performance. I didn't see any significant lag that wasn't in the game proper; the 3D animations in Apollo Justice seem really slow but they were slow in the original game too. When I played for the preview, I played it while watching an eSports tournament so I turned my Switch on and off in five-minute intervals. This lead to the audio bugging out, which I easily fixed by simply restarting the game. Well, I was watching an eSports tournament again this time and there weren't any issues with the audio. So I guess the first time I ran into problems was a fluke. Since I heard that the PC version of The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles had some issues, I can't say for sure how it runs on other platforms. But in terms of the Switch, it plays very smoothly.

Another thing I noticed is that the game's localization is a lot easier to read. I vividly remember the fifth game in particular having multiple typos and grammatical errors on the 3DS, but they're not present anymore in this trilogy. It is a little bit jarring to go from Apollo Justice to Dual Destinies though. This is because the margin for the text is different. It doesn't sound like a big deal on paper but after playing like four games with the text boxes looking the same, it takes a bit of time to adjust to the new ones. This was likely a change that occurred on the 3DS so I highly doubt that the Capcom could change it for the port even if it wanted to.

The main issue with Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy is that it allows you to play the games back to back straight away. You no longer need to wait literal years between each entry. This means that you'll likely remember character and plot details a lot clearer, which makes it easier to notice when the writing doesn't go back to them later. A joke I saw online is that this is the Apollo Justice trilogy because Apollo has three different backstories in these games. It's not wrong... The fourth game sets up enough mysteries about Apollo's background and past, but the latter games don't really pick up these threads.

Changes to the legal world that occur in the fourth game also do not come back in a meaningful way. We get little follow-up on Klavier after the fourth game, whereas Blackquill returns for quite some time in the sixth. The Mood Matrix and the Divination Seance feel less like evolutions of Apollo's Perceive. Instead, they seem more like elements that would occur in a spinoff a la Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. Maybe the 3DS games were supposed to be a fresh start for players who might not have had access to the fourth game or the original trilogy. In any case, it certainly is a lot easier to think of Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice as their own little duology rather than part of an Apollo trilogy.

Fans of the fourth to sixth Ace Attorney games will be delighted to experience these games again, I'm sure. I was certainly excited to see characters like Klavier and Rayfa once more, and in HD too! It's also a good introduction for those who never played them before on the 3DS. Now that I'm done playing through this trilogy though, I think I'll go back and revisit the Phoenix Wright games and The Great Ace Attorney.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy will come out on January 25, 2024 for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC. Nintendo Switch version reviewed.

Fire Emblem Engage Rings to appear as capsule toys in Japan

The Emblem Rings from Fire Emblem Engage will appear in real life. Takara Tomy Arts will release the Fire Emblem Engage Emblem Ring Engage Collection as capsule toys inside gashapon machines in Japan in early 2024. [Thanks, Dengeki Hobby Web!]

As these rings are set to appear as capsule toys, people will be able to obtain them randomly by paying just 300 yen (~$2) for a single try. The rings will have a diameter of 2.2 cm (~0.87 inches) and be made with zinc alloy and metallic coating. Each ring will also be chained with a paper tag featuring the Fire Emblem Engage logo.

While Nintendo and Intelligent Systems released more Emblem Rings featuring characters like Camilla and Hector as DLC for Fire Emblem Engage, this collection will only have the twelve rings featured in the base game. Volume 1 will appear first with Marth, Sigurd, Celica, Micaiah, Roy, and Leif's rings in late January 2024. Volume 2 will follow later in late February 2024, and it will complete the roster with Lyn, Lucina, Ike, Byleth, Corrin, and Eirika's rings.

Fire Emblem Engage is immediately available worldwide on Nintendo Switch. The game had over 1.6 million units sold within the first two months after release between January 20, 2023, and March 31, 2023.
